    "The finest buckwheat pancakes ever created by man can be found here (probably). Unless, that is, some were made at this venue last week that were just a little better because of some nuance in an obscure aspect of string theory that has yet to be properly grasped by humanity. Eggs are central to many of the breakfast dishes here, so if eggs are your favorite staple, you’re in luck. There is a del ... read more >

    "The miso ramen here is rich and delicious with a perfect roast pork flavor. Come in a large group, as smaller parties of two have limited space at the tables provided. However, if you’re into sharing each other’s dishes, this is the ideal situation for a date. The venue itself is quite small. The tan tan ramen is spicy and highly recommended.
